Pours a very deep brown with a nice 1 inch mocha head. Smell is chocolate, cocoa, with a little coffee and roasted malts. Taste is cocoa and chocolate with a hint of hop bitterness and oatmeal. Medium body with medium tolow carbonation. Overall a very good porter.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Brownish black pour, huge head of billowing mocha tinged foam, big clumps of fluffy 3-D lacing all over the glass, coating it. Long lasting and really nice looking.

Roasty aroma, milk chocolate, toast, mellow char.

Extremely creamy and roasty, mellow hoppy bitterness, long lingering aftertaste of bitter dark chocolate and mild ashy char. Light green hops in the background. Everything is balanced and all elements are in sync. Very polished and enjoyable all around, nothing out of place. Great stuff, very happy MBC has finally arrived in Chicago.

I've made my way through a lot of the MBC offerings and have loved just about all of them and was not disappointed by this one.
Poured at about 55 degrees jet black with a foamy inch or two head that lingers for a bit but isn't as deep/dark brown as a stout and is more of a light chocolate color. Interesting sweetness in the nose that reminds me of burnt brown sugar and cocoa powder and a bit biscuity. Taste is very nice chocolately but not sticky sweet with a bit of roasted coffee notes. Definitely a bit thin versus a stout but goes down easy with a nice lingering slightly bitter dryness left behind.

Overall this will stand up to some of the best porters I've had and I'll be buying this one again for sure

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Pours a thick (2 finger) nut brown head, fading fast but leaving plenty of lacing. Brew is an oily, smooth chocolatey black, completely opaque.

Aroma is sweet with strong coffee, bitter chocolate, and grapes; wheat struggles in the background, along with a hint of dry hops.

Smooth, sweet chocolate in a glass. Slightly sour grape, black coffee, oatmeal, milk, and wheat grain all take a background to the chocolate.

Feel is thick and chewy, like chewing on chocolate wheat. I'm not sure if this is a porter, or the greatest breakfast cereal of all time. Very minor foaming, no bite or sting, and the 7.5% is incredibly well-hidden.

This isn't a stout? This is an incredibly thick, luscious, velvety porter. An excellent choice for dessert, although I imagine it would make a great breakfast all by itself on a weekend.

A - Solid looking beer. Thick black body with thin cola highlights. Thick cap of light tan foam with awesome lace and great retention.

S - Brownie batter with just a hint of cocoa cola and coffee.

T - The brownie batter from the nose is loaded throughout the profile. Sharp, dark roasted coffee and burnt toast frame the sweet milk chocolate center. Cream and coffee grind finish.

M - Awesome mouthfeel. Silky smooth, full frame. Almost feels like a nitro bottle.

O - A great brew, honestly more stout than porter, but a great brew either way.
